williams, remember, and pointed this out yesterday steve jobs told president obama, those manufacturing jobs are never going to be here in the united states. tim cook says, well, guess what? i am taking al company in a different direction. >> in many ways one of the things he did for me that removed a gigantic burden is that he told me on a couple of pages before he passed away to never question what he would have done. never asked a question what steve do, to just do what's right. >> so there was no wwsd. just do the right thing. now, here is where i disagree with tim cook a little bit. he said, here's why we haven't done this earlier. >> honestly, it's not too much about price. it's about the skills, et cetera. over time, there are skills that are associated with manufacturing that have left the u.s. not necessarily people but the education for producing. >> now, you see, i disagree with that. the skills are here americans can make these products. they can make them as good and better earn anybody in the entire world. we have a great skilled workforce
, classic voices, steve king from iowa yesterday saying the last thing we want to do is do anything at all to infringe on our second amendment rights. >> here's the thing about the steve kings of the world. they'll never support this. this is one of the frustrating things i think for americans and particularly democrats watching the gun control debate or lack thereof that's been happening. the people who weren't going to support the president on this particular issue are never going to support the president. they're never going to do it. if you believe it should be done, you have to cut your loss. on a side note, when i was watching the question and answer session with the president which one was remarkable because he hasn't been doing a lot of q&a in the pressroom with the media. >> bill: we did not expect him to take questions. we were surprised. >> if i could have asked the president one question and i don't know that i'll ever get a chance to be in the room and ask him a question. it would have been this. i watched hi
